FKA twigs is curating a Halloween-themed art exhibition

The details behind the singer’s mysterious casting call have finally been revealed

A few weeks ago, FKA twigs posted an enigmatic casting call on her social media accounts. Directed at performers “of all genres”, the ad claimed to be for a “major” London-based project. At the time, no other details were given, other than a simple additional note stating that “no talent or style” would be “too extreme.” 

Now, finally, more has been revealed. The avant-pop icon (and current Dazed cover star) has announced her own Halloween-themed art exhibition, which will reportedly open in the capital this autumn. Part of The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series, the show – titled “Rooms” – will feature the performers chosen from the August casting call.

According to a press release, her show will be an “immersive and tactile” evening in which the audience will be “encouraged on a journey of self-analysis”. It will also include “spiritual exploration”, and will provoke “fear and enlightenment through multiple” mediums. “There aren't always opportunities to make your wildest creative ideas a reality,” said twigs in an accompanying statement. “‘Rooms’ is one of my most ambitious projects to date so I'm very excited to be bringing it to life for the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series.”

For those unfamiliar with The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series, the event is marketed as an “annual celebration of creative and cultural prowess”. It’s currently in its second year, with photographer Nick Knight taking the role of 2015 curator. 

The event runs from October 27 to 28. Tickets start from £20, and can be bought on The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series website here.
